    Simple question.... Is it because the battery is too hot?

    Mine use less after supercharging.

    I think it has more to do with where the SuperCharger is located than anything else.

    Unless you can charge side-by-side with a different type of charger, there isn't really a great way to compare the difference.

    I don't see a difference. It might be the temperature of the battery + the outside temperature
